Vital Records of Waldoboro, Maine

Maine Genealogical Society Special Publication No. 54 is now available! The Vital Records of Waldoboro, Maine has been compiled and edited by Marlene A. Groves.

The town of Waldoboro was settled around the mid-1700s with families from the Pemaquid area as well as German families induced to the area by General Waldo. Later, more settlers arrived from the Massachusetts area. Although there are vital records in the original town record books, there appears to be a definite lack of early births in relation to the proportion. Because of this, it was decided to add in an addendum to this book as many other primary source records as possible to fill these gaps. Consequently, included in this book are several pages from family Bibles as well as early church records for the Waldoboro Congregational Church, the First Baptist Church and the Waldoboro Methodist Church.

If you are researching ancestors in this region, this book should be in your library.

672 pages, 26,937 entry Every Name Index, hard cover. 2008. The book sells for $67.50, but MGS members pay only $57.50!
